i think we have to own up to that. and begin dealing with the legacy in a more direct way. i mean, white supremacy has done horrific destructive things, but despite all of that, the true evil of that era for me wasn't the forced labor, it was this ideology of white supremacy. we said that black people aren't as the good as white people. and, even though we passed the 13th amendment, we didn't deal with that ideology. so it endured. so what we have seen in charlottesville is a manifestation of our failure to confront -- this history. you got to tell the truth. before you can have the kind of reconciliation that eliminates the problems that confront and deals with the problem has the we saw in charlottesville this weekend. >> is there still a role for the president in this reconciliation and conversation if you will after his remarks yesterday.
